Sorry about the delayed response to your comments on my earlier posts. I didn't have notifications set up so wasn't aware of them until I signed on. That issue has been remedied.
There's actually not much to report this week which sometimes can be a good thing at this stage in the game. No weak or struggling pups which I'm quite thankful for. I'll get them all weighed again tomorrow but can tell by looking at them and watching them, none are falling behind.
Had hoped to get this post up a bit earlier in the day but ended up in various projects. Decided I better do a bit of securing of the grounds in case wind comes our way from ETA... then it was off to spend a bit of training time with Shine so I wasn't completely embarrassed during class tonight. We missed last week and I've had little time to work with her since. But she's doing well. Our instructor routinely uses her as the demonstrator dog. Makes me feel good and it's fun to watch her as she's handled by another. Next week is graduation and I have to decide where to go from there. Skip a session or jump right back into it.
I did manage to get our cropping appointment scheduled. Pups will be done December 29th and can be picked up the day following as long as everyone is behaving as I know them to. So mark those calendars.
A few shots taken over the course of the last couple days. Collars are already filthy. We'e had quite a bit of rain and little to no sun so things outside have been consistently damp. And Getka's one who frequently likes to wade in the trough as she drinks... then brings the dirt back to bed with her. I'll get the collars washed soon and it will be a little easier to identify who's who. At this point not a whole lot of difference between them. Other than color.
